Research Interests

My main research interests are in nonlinear elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations and applications in geometry and optimal transportation. In particular, the regularity theory of Monge-Ampère equations, Hessian equations, and other variational problems.

I am also interested in related areas of geometry and physics, including geometry of convex bodies, minimal surfaces, surfaces of prescribed curvatures, and geometric flows.
